Have a fabulous week. This is wedding week for the Knabe family. There is lots of excitement in the air as we look forward to celebrating Andrea and Jon's wedding on Sunday.

Sending Stampin' Peace Hugs to you all. Thanks for your support and friendship.


Awash in Beauty Tent Cards

It wedding rehearsal day! Yay! Andrea's immediate family is here in Columbus. Jon's family came to town yesterday. The two families are looking forward to getting together with the bridal party and a few extra guests for the rehearsal and a casual dinner. The weather is looking iffy at best for Sunday's wedding, so it is likely that the ceremony will now be indoors. As my neighbor told me, though, no matter the weather, Sunday will be a beautiful day filled with joy. I look forward to sharing pictures with you as soon as I can.

In today's post, you'll enjoy a video demonstration of "tent cards" featuring the Awash in Beauty Suite used 3 different ways. The Awash in Beauty Suite is my favorite floral suite in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS! I love the rich colors and pretty prints and patterns. The new Iridescent Pearls are just as lovely, so much so that I'm on my second pack of them. And the True Beauty Bundle is lovely and so versatile as you'll see in this video.

Sweet Songbirds Class to Go

This week, my daughter Emily and I are in Florida spending time with our friends Susi and Denny from Mason, OH. We were "down the road" neighbors while my family lived in Mason. Susi is my Stampin' Up! upline. She is the person who first taught me stamping when I joined her stamp club and later encouraged me to sign up as a Demonstrator. If you know the story, it took me a year and a half to say yes to her. I said yes so she would quit asking me, but little did I know, Stampin' Up! would become my passion and even a business for me. So far on our vacation, we've enjoyed a day at the pool, dinner out, seeing the sunset at Nokomis Beach, Mexican Train game night (I lost miserably), a day at Siesta Key Beach, shopping, and a visit to the Daiquiri Deck. Tomorrow, Emily and I are getting early to see the sunrise and hunt for shark teeth on the beach with Susi. I'm so grateful to have this week of vacation to spend with Emily and good friends.

Embossing Folder Techniques

I sure am excited about this post. I had SOOOOOO much fun demonstrating lots of Embossing Folder Techniques in a recent Facebook Live. You are going to love all the different ways of using embossing folders adding more value to your embossing folders. Embossing folders are a small thing that can make a BIG impact on our cards and paper crafts. The cards and techniques I show in this video feature Stampin' Up!'s brand new Fern 3D Embossing Folder. Definitely a new favorite embossing folder for me. I hope you find this video helpful and inspiring and fun too. I'd love to see how you use some of these easy and fun embossing folder techniques.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for embossing = 4 3/4" x 3 1/2
  • Card stock layers for So Saffron and Evening Evergreen cards = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • 2 rectangle corner layers for Soft Succulent cards = 3" x 4 1/4" or size of your choice.
  • Metallic Gold strips = 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

The 2 cards below show the difference between the "embossed" and "debossed" sides of the card stock.
Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder - Mary Knabe (5)

For the 2 cards below I applied Soft Succulent Ink to one side of the embossing folder with a Blending Brush, embossed the white card stock, then cleaned the embossing folder and then repeated the process inking the other side of the embossing folder before embossing the white card stock.Stampin' Up! Fern Embossing Folder Techniques - Mary Knabe

For the following 2 cards, I embossed the white card stock pieces, then applied ink. I used a Blending Brush to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the left and used a Stampin' Sponge to apply Evening Evergreen ink to the embossed card stock on the right. Two very different looks, a softer look versus a bolder look.

6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder with Expressions In Ink

Well gosh, it's been a bit since I've posted to my blog. The past weeks have been a bit hectic and exhausting. I've been dealing with some family matters including working on wedding invitations, spending time with family over the Easter holiday, and helping a family member who became very ill last week. Fortunately, she is finally on the mend. In addition, I'm prepping kits for my highest number of participants ever for a recent class to go. Needless to say, that has put me behind in my social media posts, and I have missed it. I find that when I have to put my SU! business on the back burner at times for any reason, it confirms how much I love what I do and desire to do it more and better and for as long as I can. 

SO... moving on, I'm happy that I can jump back in this week. In today's post I'm sharing a very easy 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder to make 2 cards. This is a card layout you can use over and over for any occasion you wish for making and sending cards. Please enjoy the video demonstration, then give this One Sheet Wonder a try. And afterwards, please share you creations on my Facebook Business Page Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe or in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group to inspire others.

Cutting Dimensions to make 2 cards:

  • Card Base (cut 2) = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock inside (cut 2) = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Cut DSP as shown in Video so that you have 2 pieces measuring 3" x 3 1/2" and 2 pieces measuring 3" x 2 1/2"
  • Gold Foil (cut 2 pieces of each size) 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" and 3 1/4" x 2 3/4".
  • Basic White strip (cut 2) = 3 3/4" x 3/4"
